Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

I would add to Maher's description - "President Trump who suffers from being a cynical narcissist - and is a congenital liar."

Re: Deja vu all over again?

I love trams! In Hong Kong I use them much of the time. At about Bt. 10 a ride of any length, they are a steal. They also tend to move faster than buses, although nothing beats the underground for speed. In cities like Prague, Zurich. St. Petersburg and Istanbul, again I greatly enjoyed using them. ...

Re: Air pollution problems in Bangkok

These super cheap "zero dollar" tours were once warmly welcomed. Much less so now. For the last 15 months the government has been cracking down on these tours precisely because they don't get much benefit from them. Obviously it has not proved very effective so far, but the number of indep...

Dildo for President?

Indonesia has a very large number of young people. 17 - 40 year olds will make up 40% of the voting population in April's General Election. And they are pissed off with the lying political establishment. So will they buy into the ticket "Dildo for President"? Unlikely, unfortunately, if on...

Re: Air pollution problems in Bangkok

Jun's post reminds me of a movie from my younger days - "It it's Tuesday, it must be Belgium"! Only this was about a group of American tourists 'doing' a bus tour of 9 European countries in 18 days. Maybe things haven't changed so much over the years!

Re: Air pollution problems in Bangkok

These monsters appeared in Bangkok well over a year ago. One problem is they ferry tourists to and from hotels, including to the Ibis Hotel just across from the Malaysia Hotel. As anyone who knows that area is aware, the roads around there are very narrow. So the buses make their way down Sathorn So...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Isn't there some legislation that would ban that dreadful Pence woman's school from its bigoted questionnaire? Can't it be denied funding?

Re: Air pollution problems in Bangkok

Today is even clearer than yesterday. Bright sunshine this afternoon, a lot of blue sky and a light breeze blowing the tops of the trees. I haven't been out yet but it seems like a very pleasant day.

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Pence's stupidity in continuously parroting his master's voice really made him look yet more idiotic yesterday.
